Temperatures in Norfolk rose noticeably today (April 7) with highs of 17.5C at Houghton Hall and 16.5C in Norwich, making it the warmest day of 2018 so far.

Lots of people in Norwich celebrated the lovely day by grabbing gelato, with queues out of the door at Cafe Gelato on Opie Street.

And Weatherquest forecaster Richard Jones said that it could still get warmer within the next hour, with maximum temperatures of 18C predicted before the day ends.

However the warmth doesn't look set to continue into tomorrow.
